SF Cutters: SF2011 SuperMeet Free Workshops

If you have been to a SuperMeet, you already know the excitement, information, networking and incredibly-generous raffles, that have made each SuperMeet a can’t-miss event. This year’s SuperMeet planners have added to the excitement with free (yep – free) SuperMeet Workshops on Friday, January 28, at the Mission Bay Conference Center. If you are in film, video, motion graphics, editing or related industries, you need to network and learn at the next SuperMeet and you want to check out these workshops.

Be there.

Digital CONNtent Creators: Growing by Working Together

In 2003 Keith Larson and a team of Final Cut Pro users started the Connecticut Final Cut Pro User Group. They have come a long way in the past 8 years, seeing their name change, membership expand to more than 500 members and focus widen. Now they are called Digital CONNtent Creators, with a mission of building connections between editors, motion graphics artists, independent filmmakers, students and video professionals who embrace the digital desktop media revolution. What’s’ next? This fall will bring ProductionCONN 2011, a two-day Exposition with a cross section of Interactive Workshops designed for production professional, featuring 10,000 square feet of vendors, interactive workshops, networking and events.

Watch them grow.

HMAUS: A Bit of Something for Everyone

Groups often face a dilemma: offer simple topics and the techies will be bored, leading to a drop off in meeting attendance. Offer topics that meet the needs of advanced users and the newbies or casual users will decide that the group is not the right fit for their needs. The Hawaii Macintosh and Apple Users’ Society (HMAUS) meets the needs of both by offering multiple types of special events. Their MacLearn workshops, Geek Days and Boot Camps offer hands-on tutorials, while their monthly Mac Monday Manias emphasize the fun side of technology. Add in their HI Touch Learning Clinics, offering face-to-face help and hands-on support, and you can see why this group truly meets the needs of all members!
